In brief: Yes, BUT

Only with the say-so of your cornea specialist.
This is a very complicated issue and one that you should not pursue without sound advice of your particular situation.

In brief: Cause of ulcer?

Yes, but, if corneal ulcer was caused by wearing contact lenses, then extreme caution and supervision by your eye md is essential so as to avoid future problems.
Some individuals may never be able to comfortably wear contact lenses and complications can result if they are continued. The advise of your eye md is necessary. Good luck.
